Another stabbing
Another sentence
And I keep falling
I have no legs to put on the ground
Cause I cut em' off
With my very own chainsaw
I saw that the blade was there
It was whirring at my knees
But I put it to my flesh
A tiny gash then a great big hole
And I will
Keep on cutting till I have no more
Till’ there's nothing of me left to destroy
Isn't it a shame when you just can't think
The psychosis creeps on you silently
Now there's a target on you
You can't get it off of you
The only way out is to grab that gun and shoot
A couple bullets now you're bleeding, they went straight through
Passed out the other side
Hit an innocent bystander
Now she's wounded too
Why did it have to be this way?
Should have thought about it the first time you cut that limb
Stared at the blood
You're just a stump of the person you once were
Though in reality I have never known anything else
Lying there with a heart dripping in your mouth
You leave your bones and your guts with the rest of the world
Yes in reality you've never known anything else
My chainsaw was always much smaller than yours
I wish I could shrink it for you, stop you hanging from that power cord
Drowning in your mess
And crawling through the open door
So that large boarded target would be sliced through like a throwing star
Sometimes I think I'll give up
I guess there's no way back
When everyone's got a cross on their heart
Wounded she never looked in the mirror and saw who was pulling the trigger
Wouldn't it be a shock to see
That it
Is you
Flying through the air, the black throwing star
Her words are her weapon
Her emotions are her cape
Too broken for a crutches
Too alive for a grave
Every star is confiscated
Melted down or thrown away
But you’re not an object
You hold the chainsaw of heartbreak
You'll never give up
Be glad you don't have the target on you
I wish you were a shooting star no edges to scratch those around you

Suddenly in Teal
To find my legs now would only make me sadder
